Bill of Rights in Action: Juvenile Law


Published 1974


Follows two brothers, ages fifteen and eighteen, after their arrest, pointing up differences between adult criminal procedures and juvenile law. Asks whether it would be better if juveniles were treated as adults, subject to criminal sanctions but granted constitutional rights. Raises questions about the paternalistic character of juvenile justice and the constitutional issues involved in reform of the juvenile justice system. Filmed with the Seal Beach, California PD.
